Albright alumni travel program takes on Europe

The Albright Alumni Travel Program continues in 2020!

Would you like to join an academic trip to Europe with our Fashion Department in May 2020? Students will accompany fashion instructor, MeeAe Oh-Ranck, for a trip through the fashion capitals of Paris, Amsterdam and Madrid — and alumni are invited to travel alongside our students this summer.

The European capitals we are visiting are filled with history, culture, architecture, geography and art that has influenced fashion for centuries.  Now you can walk these paths of style and creativity and learn about these early “influencers” on this exciting Albright journey!
